WEG is providing greater protection for inverter drive applications in food, beverage, and chemical industries, with the launch of its new IP56-rated, CFW-08 'Wash' frequency inverter. The CFW-08 Wash is designed for applications that require a higher degree of protection against the ingress of contaminants; the drive's IP56 (Nema 4X) rating providing effective safeguarding against the ingress of dust and water.
The CFW-08 Wash is based on the well proven technology of WEG's current CFW-08 product line. As such, it benefits from WEG's unique Space Vector Modulation for optimised motor control and quiet operation. The 'Wash' also offers users the performance benefits of 32- bit RISC microprocessor controlled PWM output, and the flexibility and convenience of adjustable switching frequencies of 2.5 / 5 / 10 / 15 kHz.
